Bathroom Safety Products That Wheelchair Users Can Benefit From

The current generation of Americans might be the least shy of all time. Everything they do is broadcasted all over social media, for all of their friends and family to see. We make reality stars into household names. Americans are overexposed!

But despite how forthright we are about almost anything now, we still don’t like to discuss the bathroom. At least, not in serious terms. For instance, did you know most folks don’t eat nearly enough fiber? But we don’t like to talk about it, because it concerns bodily functions. We have some strange hang-ups, folks.

Well today, we’re going to dive right in. Let’s talk about the bathroom – specifically, what sort of safety products could help you out in there.

Shower chair

If you don’t have a shower chair, you’re doing this all wrong – or you’re struggling with a normal household chair in the shower stall. Opt for one of these babies instead, which are made of plastic and adjustable. They’ve even got suction cups on the bottom, in order to provide stable footing in the tub.

Bedside commode

This is basically a portable toilet, which you can place beside your bed for those late night potty breaks. Instead of hauling yourself all the way over to the toilet, why not transfer to this handy commode at the side of your bed? Alternatively, for male patients, there are plastic urinal bottles available – some with glow-in-the-dark lids!

Grip bars

Whether you place them at the side of the shower, the toilet or anywhere else, these can come in handy (no pun intended). If you’re alone, they can be vital for transferring to and from the toilet or your shower chair. And if you’re not capable of installing them yourself, there are organizations that can help you out.

Pants Up Easy

Forgive the self-promotion, but this is exactly why we created Pants Up Easy – to make life easier for wheelchair users in the bathroom! Seriously.

Our founder realized how difficult it was for most wheelchair users to pull up their pants, which is why he created this product. It’s incredibly simple: it functions like a spare pair of metal “arms,” which can be used for support. You throw your own arms over the metal “arms,” which will rest underneath the armpit. After that, all you have to do is reach down and pull your pants up.
